FRANKLIN — Service Credit Union recently opened its 43rd branch worldwide and 26th in New Hampshire, expanding its presence in the Lakes Region with its second branch in that area. Formerly Members First Credit Union's Franklin location, Service Credit Union's new full-service banking institution with a deposit-taking ATM is located at 886 Central Street in Franklin.
Members First Credit Union selected Service Credit Union to acquire the branch, along with the deposits and certain loans, because Service Credit Union shares the same credit union values, commitment to service and community involvement. It currently has a strong market presence in the area with the Tilton In-store Branch in the Lakes Region along with in-stores in Concord and Plymouth off the 93 corridor.
Gordon Simmons, President/CEO of Service Credit Union, cited the connection of Franklin and Service Credit Union's long history within New Hampshire. "In 1957, eight individuals founded what is now Service Credit Union," Simmons said. "Their goal was to provide affordable financial services to civilian employees and military personnel at the air force base in Portsmouth, N.H. We continue that goal today and have expanded it to all those members who live and work in New Hampshire."
Service Credit Union offers enhanced products and services, such as surcharge-free ATMs, free ATMs, free debit card usage, free checking and Student Checking, getting paid up to two days early, instantly issued Visa® credit and debit cards, loan discounts, online auto buying center, shared branching and 7-day banking at all in-store locations. Plus, members can enjoy a comprehensive suite of online services including bill pay, mobile apps, remote check deposit, SMS text messaging, person to person payment service, an online financial management system and online TurboTax products.
"Franklin's new location enhances the footprint of unparalleled financial services and convenience that Service Credit Union currently provides," Simmons added.
The full-service branch offers six-day banking services, mortgages, consumer loans, and a full-service ATM. The hours are Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.
